WOMEN spend thousands of pounds on their hair every year – from trips to the hairdressers, to products and styling tools.
But when it comes to hair straighteners, does a hefty price tag really reflect how the quality and how well they work?
Well, one beauty fan decided to put the £5 viral Primark mini straighteners to the test – and was very surprised by the results.
Beauty guru Ling.kt, known also as Ling.kt on TikTok, shared a video demonstrating how she styled her hair using the mini styling tool.
In the clip, she begins by saying: “Make sure to use lots of heat protect spray.”
Unpackaging the product, she then enthuses: “Look how this £5 straightener comes with a pouch!
Look how tiny they are – oh my god, it’s so cute!”
The beauty fan adds: “Mini hair straighteners are making me so happy. Oh my god it’s so cute!”

In a second clip, she then glides the straighteners over her long dark locks.
She then lets six large rollers, which she bought for £2 from Primark, set in her hair before taking them out.
“I’ve only done one part of my hair and I have very high hopes,” she says. “It’s so weird straightening my long hair with these mini straighteners!”
At the end, she shares the finished results – and is clearly very impressed.
“The ends aren’t perfect, but these curtain bangs – yes!” she enthuses.
The post has since racked up an impressive 80,000 views and been inundated with comments from social media users.
“I need the straightener,” noted one.
A second penned: “Your Primark videos always make me miss Primark so much!! West coast US has none.”
A third commented: “Yesss been waiting for this!!”
Meanwhile, a fourth wrote: “I NEED THE MINI STRAIGHTENER.”
A further added: “Aw I want the mini straightener – looks so cute!”
